If so, CompTIA's Public Technology Institute (PTI) invites you to submit an entry for the 2020 PTI Solutions Awards.

The annual PTI Solutions Awards recognizes cities and counties that have implemented or updated innovative technology solutions within the past 15 months that positively affected local government performance and service to the public. Check out the 2019 honorees here.

Award Selection Process

An independent voting committee will review all entries and select award recipients. When reviewing each entry, the voting committee will be considering:

  • How replicable is the solution for other local governments? How can other jurisdictions benefit from implementing this solution?
  • How innovative is the solution?
  • How involved were staff in the development and/or implementation of the solution?
  • How much of an impact did the solution have on government services or programs?

One entry will be selected as a winner per technology and population category. Entries may also be designated as a Significant Achievement.
